My Approach to Helping
I am a licensed clinical psychologist. I offer individual psychotherapy, couples therapy and psychotherapy supervision and consultation.. I am grounded in psychodynamic relational theory and I also use a broad range of methods and theories to tailor therapy to the goals and needs of each individual or couple. I am also an Emeritus Associate Professor at the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology, Yeshiva University. And I supervise therapists in training and in practice and have taught supervision seminars at several New York postgraduate training institutes.
I work with adolescents and adults who are coping with anxiety, depression, loss, life crises, problems in intimate relationships, and troubling patterns of behavior. I have extensive training and years of experience in psychodynamic psychotherapy, couples therapy, Schema Therapy, and CBT.
In my work with patients, I aim to provide collaborative, supportive, yet challenging experiences in which patients can access their inner strengths, hope, and get out of the self fulfilling prophecies that have kept them stuck and demoralized. I help people discover the unfinished business from their childhoods and work to reduce its hold on them.
